Cross Earns Star News Honor
The Tyler Star News Athlete of the Week for October 16, 2019 is Paden City Senior Quarterback Ethan Cross. On Friday night in a loss to Clay Battelle Cross stood out big time as he accounted for all five of the Wildcat touchdowns with three rushing and two passing.
Cross broke free for T.D. runs of 47 yards, 45 yards and added a five yard run. He passed for 128 yards and T.D.’s of nie yards and 48 yards on 11-24 attempts. Rushing he gained 169 yards on 20 carries while also making good on all three of his extra point kicks. The senior leader never played football last season, but has used his natural athletic ability to bring a big boost to the Wildcats in 2019. Congratulations to Ethan on a job well done.
